By the time I publish this post, it will be tomorrow.
Part of me wants to whine a little bit about how I was up to my neck in 7 loads of laundry, a weekend’s worth and broken dishwasher-full of dishes, and company in and out all day long etc.etc.
Not to mention the whole discourse I had planned to write on how heat and teething, do not compliment each other, in which I would strategically tuck in this clever quote from Mark Twain: " Adam and Eve had many advantages, but the principal one was that they escaped teething. "
Or about how much I have been looking forward to getting a chance to sit down at the computer all day and anonymously thank the anonymous person who nominated me for MSN’s What’s Your Story?. I was suprised and delighted at the news. Most of all because it means I get to meet all sorts of wonderful new people like you. I expected that being featured on Spaces would perhaps be today’s highlight. It’s turned out to be more like a cherry on top. I will explain…
First of all, Annabelle did something unprecedented today. Really, it was nothing short of remarkable. She waved at me. Over and over and over. With her adorable and wobbily little baby hand, in slow baby-motion. Now, Is that cute, or is that cute?! At first I thought it was this adorable random kind of thing. Until she waved at David, at her Auntie’s Roo and Deb and at her Uncle Bear. Okay, so my 5 month old is waving and she knows it. And I know it. And she knows that I know it! She is doing it on purpose. She and I and everyone else for that matter, we know it.
It is truly the cutest thing I have ever seen in my life…she could win the Nobel Peace Prize and I wouldn’t be any prouder of her than I am right now, today!
The other thing was this. I have done a lot of blogging in past months and come across a lot of wonderful people. But I have never before seen anything nearly as sweet as the comment I discovered tonight. It was a note from a husband to his wife that he left in her guestbook. Let me tell you, that woman is blessed. This is what she had to say about him, and I quote, " Loving and being loved by a good man is like winning the lottery, every single day of your life."
